Jumpsuits are not just for nu-metal bands. And anyway, Slipknot stole their name from an early Revelation band. Nevermind...Action Patrol is (was) one of those bands that speaks to me. Honest, insiteful, and humorous. That's where the jumpsuits come in.

This CD is a collection of everything they ever recorded (two 7"s and a 12") plus a really crappy, but nonetheless awesome, recording of they're last show ever. The music? Fast, minimalistic hardcore with sung/screamed vocals that are sometimes incomprehensible, but that doesn't matter...then you can sing along even before you know the words. The lyrics are very intelligent and it's really fun to scream stuff like "...lack of changes/ a demographic of the estranged/ a system nervous of nervous systems/ leads us to this absurd tryst..."

The eight songs from the two 7"s (Up and Running & 'B' is for Bombard) are the band at their best, and the 12" ain't too shabby either.

Oh yeah, they wore orange jumpsuits on stage. Ha ha.

I think what that first guy meant is that NOFX sucks, so check out Action Patrol because they don't suck. (Actually, I don't think that's what he meant, but he should've meant that.) Anyways, Action Patrol rocks out with their cocks out.

I too, believe Action Patrol to be a great band. This is an exceptional addition to everyone's collection. But forget that NOFX comment that other dude made. AP would not even be a band had the CRUCIFUCKS never existed. Now that is a crucial band. "Hinkley Had a Vision."

This band is Jesus.

I have an AP patch on my bag, touch me.

Seriously, if you like NOFX check this out, it's way better, and smarter.

"Sometimes I wish I could bend your barrel backwards / make you inahle the fire you started Mr. Samuel Colt" = best gun control song EVER.
